Now who is it that encourages violence? One of de Blasio's judges will give him 60 days in a mental hospital and a new box cutter
The career criminal accused of slashing a woman on her way to work at Whole Foods on Wednesday is also suspected of striking a 25-year-old victim on the head with a bottle while calling her a “white bitch,” police sources said.
Kari Bazemore, 41, was charged Thursday night with a third assault, and has been linked to two more attacks since the end of September, sources said.
According to the newest charges, he struck a 43-year-old victim in the face with a heavy shopping bag as she stood on Fifth Avenue in Midtown on Nov. 4.
Cops have also linked him to a Sept. 29 attack on a 25-year-old salon worker and her 28-year-old friend as they were walking on East 174th Street near Walton Avenue in The Bronx, police sources said.
They had just left a subway station with a third friend, when the 25-year-old victim noticed a man in a gray hoodie running straight at her, police sources said.
The man then smacked the right side of her head with a bottle in a plastic bag, calling her a “white bitch.”
Her 28-year-old friend was injured as she tussled with the bottle-wielding man, who continued screaming, “Bitch!” at her, police sources said.
He is also expected to be charged in the slashing of Nicole Pagliaro, 28, who needed 150 stitches after she was attacked outside of her apartment building on Jan. 1, sources said.
Less than a week later, he was arrested for slashing 24-year-old Amanda Morris’ face as she walked to her job at a Whole Foods in Chelsea.
Bellevue Hospital doctors are evaluating Bazemore’s mental health, and he has yet to be arraigned for the Nov. 4 and Jan. 6 attacks, sources said.
